Controlling Heavy Bleeding With Fibroids

If you are seeking information on controlling heavy bleeding with fibroids, then there are a few steps you can take to get some relief. There are different forms of bleeding with fibroids-sometimes you can experience breakthrough bleeding, at various times during the cycle, some women might experience bleeding at a specific time in the cycle whereas the most common problem is heavy bleeding at the time of the menstrual period itself, with some women finding that their periods are lasting for at least a week.

The reasons why this problem might occur include:-

* Fibroids result in an increased growth of blood vessels to supply the fibroids which results in a greater volume of blood flowing around the area
* Fibroids can result in blockages depending on their location. This can cause blood to back up behind the fibroids which then seems very heavy once released
* Uterine congestion can cause an alteration in the blood flow serving the uterus

If nothing is done to control heavy bleeding with fibroids, then progressive anemia can result, along with severe pain. There isn’t a clear-cut step to manage the bleeding, but very often it is a case of trying a few different approaches, often in combination, which can work best.

To help with anemia, iron supplements can be very helpful and you may need to consider taking prescription-strength supplements depending on your iron levels. In addition, take vitamins A C and E, together with Folic Acid and Vitamin B12. Anti-inflammatory tablets, such as Ibuprofen can reduce the severity of cramping and help to reduce the bleeding itself, as can lying down with your legs raised.

Taking moderate exercise can help to reduce one-off episodes of cramping and when done regularly, exercise can help to reduce congestion within the area and thus help control heavy bleeding with fibroids. When exercising, finish off by lying on your side and pulling your legs up to your chest.

Of course, the best solution is to eliminate your fibroids completely as this will get rid of all associated symptoms, including bloating, discomfort, pain and bleeding and if you are prepared to make various changes to your lifestyle and your diet, then this is entirely possible.

    • ANSWER:
      Sometimes doctors will recommend vitamin E for fibroid tumors. One individual took 6 Vita-E daily for three weeks. When re-examined, she was pleased to find the tumors were practically gone. The doctor asked her what brand of vitamin E she was taking. He told her this brand was the very best.

  5. QUESTION:
    Pregnancy, fibroids and bleeding. Anyone else?
    I am 14 weeks pregnant and was diagnosed with a uterine fibroid tumor at 9 weeks, after some light spotting. Last Saturday evening while making dinner i started bleeding.. heavily. Hubby and I rushed to ER to basically be told “it happens to some women with fibroids. Go home and come back if it continues for too long”. At my regular doctors that Monday he called the bleeding “worrysome” and and told me to take it easy and that the bleeding means the baby my be trying to miscarry. My question is: I heard women say they had the periods throughout there whole pregnany, but technically it can not have been a real period… so were you bleeding from a fibroid? How often did you bleed? And did the baby live full term? How about delivery? C-section? Please keep in mind I have a uterine fibriod.. one near my cervix.

    • ANSWER:
      I was recently diagnoised as having a fibroid tumor about a month ago but I am not pregnant. During my first pregnancy I did start bleeding. It was heavy like a regular period and even some clotting. I went to the er convinced that I had miscarried but the baby’s heartbeat was fine. I bled for the first 3 months of that pregnancy and I did carry to full term and have a healthy 16 year old son now. So don’t worry especially if there is no cramping. Just stay off of your feet as much as possible during the bleeding. Oh, and congratulations.
